I think there is a lady in America who lives in a 50s style house. They'd both have loads to talk about.

I liked that era too, but no era is without problems and benefits. Including the current one. Movie of local people from 1937 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ihWSqgSLnM&t=595s
JR G (2 days ago)
More old movies of the older era. This is the US, but the look is the same. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJsF2e1AmFY&t=840s

This is the same mentality that reenactors have. They love and understand other eras better than their own.

Im expectiing big thumbs up for this comment ! But the thing is.....if he was actually alive in the 1950s, hed probably be dressing and living like he was in the 1890s. Because people sometimes think that the past was so much better. Maybe in some ways it was and maybe in some ways it isnt. Cool guy though. But thats just my opinion

You do what you enjoy bro, its not hurting anyone and if it makes you happy I don’t have anything bad to say. I’m happy this guy is happy
CAMZAB (2 days ago)
Any plans to catch up with Ben to see what he's up to? You could show a bit of this in "Back in time for tea" when they're in 1946 and have a 5 minute clip of how he does it? Anything just find out if he's still doing it please, I'm guessing he's got a full Star Trek bridge for his living room.

stripervince1 (3 days ago)
I love it. I would live in 1968
I'm obsessed with all time periods before 2000 but the time periods I ACTUALLY want to live in and think about daily are 1970s NYC idk why I'm just drawn to that, and number one American Revolutionary period living in New England. I would give up everything to live in either of those times.

1:41 I was expecting a lovely view, maybe a mountain or an old church and then while typing this i seen the grave stones so I’m not suprised as much now

Last time I checked, they had indoor plumbing and refrigerators in the 1940s. Other than style and decor, you still had all the modern conveniences that we have now...

Ok. This may sounds a little strange to some people. But what has happened, most likely, is that the gentleman lived a good, happy, enjoyable life in that period; but left (died) too soon. Now living again in this period there is a strong desire to complete that lifetime and remain enjoying the life he missed. If he is placed under hypnosis and regressed I believe that will be the case. (Disclaimer) Humans never incarnate as animals. Humans have individual souls and animals have group souls. That's why you see things like flocks of birds turning all at once. They're connected. So, humans' always come to earth as a human being. Last, Reincarnation and Transmigration are two separate doctrines that have gotten confused by people. God is Love, and love does not judge or condemn. We get every chance we need to make it back to Heaven. Not just one chance. That is part of the Great Apostasy in the Church that supposedly Jesus wanted. (He didn't even want a church.)
